Our Special Needs Collection:
These carefully selected materials support the various learning styles, social and emotional development and sensory integration issues of children. The goal of this collection is to supplement resources for professionals, provide children with new material for learning and be a useful teaching guide for parents to use at home. This is an ever-growing collection and we are always looking for suggestions from our Special Needs community.
Materials in the collection include:
- Sensory backpacks: collection of materials to help students with sensory needs lessen anxiety, improve focus and develop social skills
- Hands-on games and flashcards
- Learning materials with teacher's guides
- Informative books for parents and teachers working with children who have unique learning needs.
Our programs are open to children of all abilities. To connect with us, please call the Children's Services desk, or email Patti Eaton, Children's Services Assistant Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
